Another person who gave testimony said: "We are going to take the land, even if it means we're going back to the dark ages. This country must be African. We are African."
A man wearing a T-shirt of the right-wing Freedom Front Plus party said that his Afrikaner people had been farming in the Western Cape for the past 300 years.
"When my forefathers came, they found no-one but the Khoi and the San. My people got what they have in this country not by theft, not by genocide, but by fair means."
Some land owners threatened war to defend their farms and their opponents vowed to respond in kind.

This is not going to end well for whites. They have no choice but to leave if they want to live.

Agreed.. plus, salting the earth so nothing will grow there for 1000 years, takes some time and logistical planning, so they need to start soon.
Ha, they won’t need to salt anything. The ones who want to run things will destroy all of it. In short order, they will be starving and begging for help.
“Is South Africa’s land reform an election gimmick?”
I’m reminded of a Loony Toons short I watched as a kid.
Where a guy is auditioning to be in a vaudeville show for Porky Pig. he puts on a devil’s outfit, and drinks a substantial amount flammable liquid, then light a match and ingests it only to explode.
Porky is impressed by the showmanship, and the guy says basically that it is indeed a great gimmick, but the problem is that you can only do it once.
So if it is a gimmick....then it will be one hell of an explosion.
“Once we addressed and resolved the land question, the country will take off,” he said.”
Ooooooooh yeah...blow up real good.
If it were the other way around they wouldn’t be asking if it’s a gimmick.
You are so right.
The South African Government is nothing but one very big Kickback Scam
Ditto for socialism/communism. You can only confiscate what people have once... after that, they stop producing.
“We are going to take the land, even if it means we’re going back to the dark ages. This country must be African.”
The Afrikaners were there first.
If I recall correctly, it was the guy's GHOST that made the reply.
“The Natives Land Act of 1913 restricted black people from buying or renting land in “white South Africa”, leading to the forced removals of black people.”
It is not going to be easy to detangle ownership of those lands that were seized in 1913 and those that will seized in the near future.
This is not an uncommon problem around the world.
Thousands of Cuban families were kicked off their land by the Castro Communists following the Revolution and those families have still not had their land returned.
It may be an election gimmick now but history proves by numerous example that the ‘land reform’ (what a laugher terminology) will come eventually. The LEFT will keep moving in and expect the results to be in their favor. Short term it may be, long term a lot of people will suffer and many will likely die!
Mr w h i t e man, I do not care if you were here before we migrated in from the north, we are the MAJORITY now and what we say goes.
A warning to Europe and Sweden about what happens when you become outnumbered by migrants that you have allowed into your country.
In someone's South Africa commentary I saw somewhere recently, it was said that the irrigation infrastructure is already suffering. They said that because of affirmative action employment requirements, only about 1/10th of the employees are competent.
The Whites need to come to America and farm but the left will never allow it because our liberal Black politicians and “activists” are just as racist and ignorant as those in SA.
The starvation and poverty produced will cling to the ordinary people who supported this more than to those who led the charge. The elites will manage to steal enough to survive.
By the way, that salting thing is ceremonial only. Basically putting a curse on it.
“If it were the other way around they wouldnt be asking if its a gimmick.”
And one thing I’ve learned is that you take every new law or government action at face value for starters. Then you impute at least 3 times the malevolent possible outcomes...and that will prove to be the case EVERY TIME.
DHS was created to prevent another moslem 9/11. Now they literally give you tips on how to fry a thanksgiving turkey, spy on everything Americans do, raid guitar factories over obscure and dubious hardwood harvesting laws, etc etc.
If they made this law, they meant it...and three times more at least.
Typical of the leftist BBC to try to make it sound less of a threat than it is. All the MSM will ignore the genocide when it happens, because, you know, white people and stuff.
